Xiong Zhenfeng, the first Chinese player in Marbella FC's history

  • The full-back, 21, had been training with the squad all month but his trial was turned into a deal on deadline day

January was a busy one in terms of transfer activity for Marbella with five players coming in (Dani Pérez, Samu Delgado, Samu de los Reyes, Faurlín and Paulo Vitor) all with one thing in common - experience in the second and third tiers.

One player, however, broke the mold. Xiong Zhenfeng became the club's first Chinese player in its history, joining from Liaoning FC on loan until 30 June.

The full-back, 21, had been training with the squad all month but his trial was turned into a deal on deadline day.
